The day we all secretly feared is upon us, Space Invaders are here to enslave earthlings, and you are a member of a special space force unit that’s been assembled in an attempt to stop the inevitable. In this endless 2D arcade action shooter, your chances of survival are slim, but the goal is to prolong your valiant last stand and destroy as many of the warmongering aliens as possible.
Maneuver your spacecraft skillfully to avoid the incoming missiles and destroy the endless waves of hostile spaceships. There’s no better way to prove your worth than doing your best in a battle against all odds to save humankind from the brink of destruction.
How to play Space Invaders
You don’t have to destroy every spacecraft coming your way, so to stay alive a while longer, it’s important to choose your battles. The turret mounted at the front of your ship fires automatically and packs infinite ammo, so at least you don’t need to worry about that.
Quick and precise movement is the key to victory. You want to try and break through at least a single flank of the invading frontline to open an escape route once enemies are about to overwhelm you.
Shooting rockets is a great way to annihilate powerful adversaries, so make sure to use them regularly. Don’t worry if you’ve used all the rockets since you’ll be able to pick up additional shots floating across the outer space battlefield.
